AbstractBritish Satire, 1785–1840 is published in a 5 volume set. Despite the fact that Romantic period literary satire has received much critical attention, there has up to now been no scholarly collection devoted to this body of work. This set provides one, offering a representative collection of the verse satire published between the mid-1780s and the mid-1830s. It makes available a wealth of fascinating, rare and hitherto unedited material and provides the annotation necessary to a full appreciation of the complexities of the period's satire. The set also includes two important single-author volumes, the first scholarly editions of the satires of William Gifford and Thomas Moore, as well as lesser known and anonymous works.
